His music is raw, honest and always real.Malaki Aka "Black Beast" lays it on the line, no-holds-barred, "I don't go for the trendy commercial approach. What I do is for the streets, for the real,nothing watered down."
Fueled by the hunger that so many lack, Malaki holds no limits and follows no one but his own self. Self-made, self-built, whichever way you put it he's created his own foundation, meaning he's here to stay.
